when i first started dreads, via backcombing or twist n rip, i rubber banded the ends. a couple weeks later i just kinda let them fall out on their own. they were fine.

i have really skinny dreads, and the circumfrence of the dread is not as big as the section of hair that it forms from, if that amkes any sense.

well now, my roots are growing, and i clockwise rub em and they get all knotted up, but the roots are fat and the dreads are skinny. i know the dreads will fatten with time a little.. but the root to dread size ratio on my head is.. well really really large. its like a cotton ball with a pencil coming out of it. (made of hair..) should i just wait? should i re-rubberband? should i trim off parts of the skinny dreads in hope of the whole thing getting fatter?


some of my roots are growing strange, and i suppose its because i sleep on em or somehting.. the ones in the back force my dreads to point upward, and my roots just get all smushed up against my scalp. should i be tying my hair down at the nape of my neck when i sleep?

and one last thing (i promise!)

i have this one dread at the back of my head, where the root splits like its gonna make two, and then rejoins to make one dread. kind of like some of those people's tips out there that split into two? yeah mines reversed. rubber bands? maybe?

if you can answer ANY of these questions.. or multiple's cool too.. i'd really appreciate it! you guys kick booty.
